MEET ALIYAH (Hebrew for ascent - because she has moved on up!)
This baby girl sought shelter in a laundry room on a stormy day, emaciated and cowering next to the washing machine. She had had several litters, and was covered in fleas...
Turns out... the laundry room belonged to one of our volunteers, so Grateful Paws has thoroughly vetted her, blood tested, vaccinated, spayed and micro-chipped her.
She is in one of our foster homes and is adjusting quite well. We are pretty sure she had never been inside a house - and she lived as a 'yard dog' as she is very afraid of thunder storms... Well, those days are over.
She has a sweet temperament, loves people - and most dogs. She has been introduced to dog parks and has learned how to play and be more social. And she is crate trained. She is lovely. Loves to be leaning on you... and loves being the center of your attention.
Adoption fee $200

NOTE: Adoption fees are applied towards the vet bill: Exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip. There is rarely anything left over, but if that happens, the monies get applied to the next or previous pet - who may have had to have an x-ray, be groomed or have a dental.
